    Question Brightest LED??

    What is the brightest LED????

    I thought the SST-50 would be but the first tourch that has it is only 500 lumins.

    So is the SSC-P7 it? untill they make a quad die out of the XP-G????

    The brightest single die LED is the SST-90, not the SST-50.

    2250 lumens at 9A.

    For a single LED torch:
    The Blaster NG (SST-90) 1750 lumens:

    If you are going swimming/diving with it, it might be better to contact a high end dive light maker such as Barbarin.

    elektrolumens does custom work and he has always wanted to make a dive light so post in his subforum at CPFMP or contact him directly at
    waynej@elektrolumens.com

    Water is better at removing heat than air so no additional cooling fins are needed. Waterproofing the light is the hard part.
